Dudes of Future/Past

Never has a podcast had more fun analyzing the likes and differences of Millennials and Generation X. Comedians Kurt Long and Joey Bragg build bridges between generations using laughter, wit, understanding and nonsense. Joey's youthful exuberance, humor and determination are a great contrast to the more experienced Kurt's cautious skepticism and sarcasm. Together they dissect topics of the day from the perspectives of two entertainment industry professionals separated by 20+ years while providing plenty of laughs and insight. Neither claim to be experts or take themselves too seriously, so their conversations are always hilarious, cutting, and unique.

Happy Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza and Tuesday to you! Sorry for the delay on our usual Monday Podcast release. As I'm sure you understand, we take days off just like regular working folks for the holidays. And now we are back and bearing a gift of Tallman. You may remember him from the hilarious "Crossballs" or Channel 101's delightful hit, "Time Belt" or more recently from the Nickelodeon smash, "The Thundermans". And to us, he's a super hero as well, with a special power of making us laugh. We are so thankful Chris made some time for us here in the Coop so we could discuss his past performances, child rearing, impersonation contests, dealing with millennial co-stars and so much more! After a rough year all over the social stratosphere, we are so happy to end it (podcast-wise) on a high note with Chris. Enjoy!

One more thing, if you are still reading this, we wanted to thank you so much for subscribing and listening to our show. We do make an effort to entertain, make you laugh, spread some positivity and maybe even make you think a little bit. We welcome your input:

It's a good news/bad news situation in this episode of @DoFPCast ! Joey and Kurt dissect the state of journalism and how Millennials and Gen Xers absorb their news. In light of the recent "Fake News" epidemic that haunted the presidential election, maybe it's about time for an overhaul of the industry that intends to educate & inform. Do we have any bright ideas about it? Bad News...

But it is a fun show where we also discuss Joey's last shoot day on 'Wet Hot American Summer' and Kurt taking his kids to KROQ's Xmas fest Concert. Plus - R.I.P. Alan Thicke, Russian Hack and the sounds snails make when you step on em.

These cold December days sure can put a toll on you. So many Xmas parties. Wet, slushy days of driving, parking, shopping and wrapping. Tiresome nights of consulting "Best/Worst of the year lists". It can really wear you down. That's when you need a little love from Mom. Or in this case, Joey's TV mom, the incredible Kali Rocha! What a treat for the end of the year/pre-inauguration blues! We are so delighted and thankful to have Kali in the chicken coop for over 2 hours of silliness, reflection, discussion and a little distastefulness. But most of all, it is some of the most fun you'll have all year. Seriously, we talked for over 2 hours, (had two pee breaks for the recording) and still could have talked for a few more. I'm excited for you, the listener, to hear it. So go ahead already!

Plus, be sure to follow Kali on twitter: @kalimrocha and watch her on Liv & Maddie: Cali Style as well as her new role on CBS's Man With A Plan. She amazing on both.

The Dudes go international! What? Canada counts as a different country! Kurt recaps his journey to Vancouver and contemplates a potential move up north. Meanwhile, Joey checks in at Court to follow up his recent arrest. The boys also dive into some of their best Audio Theater ever! Also covered in this week's episode - HBO's "Westworld", Not For Me segment  & Our first ever contest winner. Enjoy!

Nov 28, 2016

Sorry for the late cast, but this one is fresh off the mics. (insert Fire emoji) Yes, that's right, we just recorded this minutes before it's release. SO we're supes topical. Fresh off Thanksgiving, we discuss Holiday Traditions and how we blindly follow them. And as our tradition, we meander from there to topics of mental illness, Death, Black Friday and of course, our weekly tradition, "NOT FOR ME" segment. It's a fun filled episode to be sure. We also have a NEW RECURRING SEGMENT, "Audio Theater", SO hope you like it. Oh and we have a CONTEST THIS WEEK. LISTEN AND WIN. Email us your thoughts, criticism, praise and money to Dudes@dudesoffuturepast.com.

This time of year, it's common to look back over the events of the past 11 months, bemoan the problems and hope for the future. And who are we to buck that tradition? Joey & Kurt discuss the events of 2016 and try to put a positive spin on it all and somehow, express Thanks. I mean, that's what we are all supposed to do, right? Be thankful? It's Thanksgiving after all. And that means fun get togethers with delicious food, moderation, and delightful conversation. Or is it? Being Dudes of Future/Past, we discuss how the holiday has changed for us from the days of our youth to now when it's a lot more of a hassle. Which house are you eating at? Is your weird uncle going to be there? When do we stop just feeding into 'tradition' and start enjoying yourself, guilt-free? Probably never if family is involved. But compared to the first Thanksgiving, it's all gravy. Please forgive all of our factual miscues when we imagine the Pilgrims and the Native American's original dinner....

Speaking of Thanksgiving, we want to wish you a happy one. It's only been 5 months since we've started this podcast and it's amazing the response we've gotten so far. Hope you have a stress-free holiday filled with family and friends that are more awesome than obligation. And of course, thanks to all the great folks who have helped make @dofpcast a reality. Shout out to Dave Cogan, Chris Holmes, Michelle Lewis and all our previous guests to date.

2016 has been an uneasy year in a lot of ways. In addition to one of the most bizarre presidential races in history, the year was also marred by the deaths of so many talented and celebrated artists. This week, that trend continued. Donald J. Trump becomes the President-Elect (and yes, we are all holding off as long as we can before just calling him 'President') and we also lost poet/musician, Leonard Cohen. The hits just keep coming... And now the nation is in full upheaval, with the losing side hitting the streets to protest and vocalize their displeasure. Some on the other side, the so-called victors who take Trump's win as just the empowerment they needed to be the worst versions of themselves, are telling anyone who isn't their skin tone that they are going to have to leave. And it's not just people in rural areas getting attacked. Celebrities in Hollywood are being called "Cucks" to their faces in bars and being prodded to fight. Oh, and our sweet, lovable Joey Bragg... well, he's been arrested! Listen in and find out all about his ordeal and so much more. And let's be better out there people!

Reeling from last night's horror show of an election result, Joey & Kurt convene to get the raw, rambling and real reaction to the announcement that Donald J. Trump will be given the keys to the kingdom. I'll be honest, it's not a lot of laughs in this episode. Try as we might, it was just too hard in the face of the recent news that our country just made what could be the biggest mistake of its history. We go through all the stages of grief here and hope it helps you cope with whatever it is you're going through right now as well. It was somewhat cathartic for us to get it all out but in the end, we are still stuck facing a very uncertain future. But we are determined to not go quietly, but rather strengthen our resolve that we must promote love, kindness, equal opportunity, tolerance and understanding. So, if you agree or disagree with us, have a listen and let us know how we can move forward and improve this country. Fingers crossed....

Joey and I wanted to make sure you had two more people rehashing the election coverage in your ears in the three days before the election. So here it is! But don't worry, we also talk Joey's latest acting gig, Cubs winning, Dave Chappelle on SNL and more! It's our fastest, fat-free episode ever! Perfect for a half-hour run on the treadmill or waiting for your cookies to bake! Enjoy and thanks for listening!

Ladies and Gentlemen, it is indeed our pleasure to have the amazingly talented Dave Holmes in the Coop this week. In fact, our discussion with him was so fantastic, we had to split it into two podcasts! Dave was gracious enough to take time from his busy schedule of DJing for Sirius Radio, writing for Esquire, making several podcasts himself and just being an all around great person to visit with us for over 2 hours. Our conversation covers a lot of his life and career, along with so many Dudes stories including catheters! So enjoy part one of our conversation and look for part two in the next few days. And Happy Halloween!

Joey is still at an age appropriate for rebelling, but for Kurt, those days are long passed. Still, both enjoy the punk rock ethos of Green Day who turns ripe old age of 23 as a band. The release of their latest studio album, Revolution Radio proves they can still rock as they have in the past, but they continue to evolve as well.  From a career that started with a riot (in Boston) to now where Billy Joe is starring in a comedy film, 'Ordinary World', they've been hard to pin down. Listen in as we discuss the idea of Punk, selling out, growing up and how Green Day has managed to do it all.

The biggest rock stars in history announced that they would be playing a three-day festival together  in Indio, California about 5 months ago. The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Neil Young, The Who and Roger Waters all playing the same stage in one epic weekend! What idiot would miss the opportunity to knock off a Rock God Bucket list in one fell swoop? Kurt Long. I am that idiot. But luckily for me, my less idiotic podcast partner Joey Bragg jumped in with both feet and came back still tingly days after the event. Listen in as Joey recounts what he calls a "Life-changing" event. Sure, my fellow Gen Xers may cynically scoff at this claim, but Joey makes a pretty convincing argument as to why Desert Trip, aka "Old"-Chella was something for the ages. (Specifically Boomers and Millennials)

Our first double guest show turns out to be one of our best yet, proving the point that More is definitely the Merrier. We asked friend & fantastic singer/songwriter Michelle Lewis & her husband Dan Petty to come by and experience the show live so they could get a good feel for the Dudes & write a theme song for us. What happened instead was one of the most amazing, natural, funny and passionate conversations we've ever had. Lots of stuff to enjoy here. We talk Music (Old & New), doubting your parent skills & Michelle's fight with the Dept. Of Justice! And They are going to help us with a theme song to boot! You are going to love this one!

Download past shows, Review and tell your friends to do the same! Thanks for listening and we'd love to hear from you!

There are plenty of differences between Gen X & Millennials, but the love of Football seems to be a tie that binds. Joey & Kurt dig deep on the sport of football, privileged players, huge salaries, bigger hits, head trauma, racist team names and a possible future of "Flag Football", and more. If you love or hate the game you'll find something to relate to as the boys pick the game apart from all sides. What is America's obsession? Why do we glorify these gladiators? Should we love it as much as we do? Have a listen and find out. Thanks and Enjoy!

"One down, two to go" says Hillary Clinton about the presidential debates. And it's said with such a confidence that if you didn't see the debates, you'd assume she won. And to many, she did. But what do the Dudes think? Are millennials confident in Hillary's future? Are the Gen Xer's being catered to in this in the election? Listen in and hear what the fellas feel like after hearing the two major party candidates go at it for the first time? Should other candidates be involved? We talk about it, (probably for too long).


We also recap our first Los Angeles Podcast Festival as a podcast couple. We learned a bunch and hopefully it'll show in an upward swing of quality in our future casts. But for now, enjoy our mediocrity.

Comedian, humanitarian, America's Hair Dad, Jimmy Pardo joins the Dudes for a discussion ranging from podcasting, Stand-up Comedy inspiration, Kids, Stress, Hollywood's lack of imagination and so much more. Largely considered the pioneer of podcasting with his trailblazing show Never Not Funny, Jimmy Pardo has cultivated quite a following all over the comedy world. And it is indeed our pleasure to sit down with him and pick his brain. Gen X & Millennials agree that JP is a comedy God and you'll see why once you listen. Enjoy!

When Nirvana released it's now history making album, Nevermind on Sept 24, 1991, one of your hosts was 18 years old. He was fresh out of high school, entering the unknown world of the big city of Boston and college life in general. Your other host was 5 years from being born. We talk about the album and what made it so important, where music was at when it arrived and where it is now.

With all the feelings that 'Nevermind' evoked, one of them was definitely one of anti-establishmentism. And that's also what we discuss on this episode. Joey's recent disillusionment with an entertainer sparks a discussion on activism, complacency and the areas in between. And we discuss whether or not "plane crash" is the preferred method of dying if you had a choice. It's a weird one. But great. You know? Enjoy

9/11 and the Iphone7. We didn't intend the rhyming scheme but still, both topics are covered in this episode (ironically numbered 11). Looking back on the last attack on American soil that we were both alive for was sobering. Joey was 5 at the time, Kurt was 28. Listen in and hear how their lives have been changed from the experience. 

Plus, we see how the announcement of the latest Iphone iteration affects the different generations. Who's excited? Who couldn't be bothered? Well, you could probably guess...

Enjoy and Never Forget

Joey & Kurt get Bert to tell tales of "Cuckold Acting", Defending his neighborhood from drug fiends, loyalty, pitching television shows and SO MUCH MORE! Download, listen and Love. We know you will.

Reunited and it sounds so GOOD! Joey arrives back in the Coop after almost two weeks. What has kept him away for so long? Oh, just a network Guest Star job and hosting a live event in NY, The U.S. Open Arthur Ashe Kids Day! Kurt, well, he did stuff too.... The boys also discuss current events, like the death of Gene Wilder, Colin Kaepernick's protest and the despicable Chris Brown. We also answer Twitter questions and Kurt goes deep on awkward work experiences. Enjoy!

Samm Levine has got some great stories! And what a treat that we got him to spill about his life before Hollywood, Freaks & Geeks, stealing Richard Jeni's act and Killing Nazi's. Does Samm consider himself a Gen Xer or a Millennial? Hear Joey and Samm compare Stand-Up comedy paths. Will Samm's allergies overtake him during the podcast? Download and listen to find out. (Also rate 5 stars, somehow that will help your understanding of the show...)

So thankful to Samm for being our first "Dude" on the show! He's a mensch!

Our first guest in the 'chicken coop' studio for DOFP is non-other than the beautiful, brilliant, bubbly & buoyant Jessica Marie Garcia. You know her from Liv & Maddie and The Middle, along with a slew of other amazing performances. (IMDB her, she's legit). But now you'll get to know her a lot better because she chats away, unfiltered, with the boys. Such a wonderful conversation...Such a wonderful lady. My daughter's future role model, JMG!

We intended to discuss the Rio Olympics, but, as we're known to do, we veered way off course. So what do we cover in this podcast? A little bit of everything else. Kurt gives Joey a music recommendation and explanation of 45's. Joey discusses the Netflix hit, "Stranger Things". And somehow we find ourselves in deep discussion of sex oddities, porn preferences and celeb fakes. Plus, we have a visit from the unknown Avett Brother! Plenty of show for everyone! Plus we answer tweets & mentions. Download, Listen, Enjoy and Share!

Back when Kurt started dating, if you wanted to impress a girl enough to be yours, you had to compete in feats of manly strength, like killing a saber toothed tiger or something. A lot has changed over the years. Now Joey just has to be stellar in the ways of emoji-speak to get a gal. Or something like that. Fact is, as much as times have changed, Love is still pretty much the same. Listen in as the boys discuss the dating habits of Millennials, Gen Xer's, and everything they know about relationships. Also, we discuss the Teen Choice Awards, and the Instagram slap fight with SnapChat and whether or not it means the end of the latter. And we answer tweets! Thanks for listening!
